This session shares the experiences of a project-based learning course that sought to design a young black leaders academy in Niagara Falls, New York. To create an all-new youth academy from scratch requires a broad and diverse set of skills (e.g., business plan development, marketing, web design, etc.) that, even collectively as a class, we do not possess. Therefore, the students have to use their own assets and networks to seek out the gifts of their friends, colleagues, and others in their networks. As the students learn the principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development, they have to put these into action in order to meet the learning objectives of the course.
Presenter: David B. Taylor, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Criminal Justice, Niagara University

Inspired by an article by John McKnight, ABCD Steward, Jess Wyatt, developed the foundations for a workshop rooted in ABCD principles and practices for the broader ABCD community. Friendship as Foundation - Softening the boundaries between Being and Doing in relationship with others and yourself is a month-long online transformational experience where participants will leave feeling more aligned and energetic in their mind, body, and spirit through a practice of nurturing friendship and physical movement.
